degree
  درجه   
darajé (#)

Fr.: degré   

1) Subdivision of an interval in a scale of measurement.
2) Geometry: Measure of angle, the 360th part of a circle.
3) Math.: Rank of an equation or expression as determined by the sum of the exponents of the variables.

From O.Fr. degré, from V.L. *degradus "a step," from L.L. degredare, from L. → de- "down" + gradus "step."

Darajé, from Ar. darajat "step, ladder."

degree of freedom
  درجه‌ی ِ آزادی   
daraje-ye âzâdi (#)

Fr.: degré de liberté   

Of a → mechanical system, the number of → independent variables needed to describe its configuration.

degree; → freedom.

degree of ionization
  درجه‌ی ِ یونش   
daraje-ye yoneš (#)

Fr.: degré d'ionisation   

The number of electrons a neutral atom has lost in an ionizing physical process (radiation, shock, collision). In spectroscopy, the degree of ionization is indicated by a Roman numeral following the symbol for the element. A neutral atom is indicated by the Roman numeral I, a singly ionized atom, one which has lost one electron, is indicated by II, and so on. Thus O VI indicates an oxygen atom which has lost five electrons.

degree; → ionization.

degree of polarization
  درجه‌ی ِ قطبش   
daraje-ye qotbeš

Fr.: degré de polarisation   

The ratio of the intensity of polarized portion of light to the total intensity at a point in the beam.

degree; → polarization.

degree of stability
  درجه‌ی ِ پایداری   
daraje-ye pâydâri

Fr.: degré de stabilité   

Statics: The → energy that must be expended to permanently disturb a specific state of → equilibrium of a body.

degree; → stability.

degree of vertex
  درجه‌ی ِ تارک   
daraje-ye târak

Fr.: degré de vertex   

The → number of → edges incident on the → vertex.

degree; → vertex.

first degree equation
  هموگش ِ درجه‌ی ِ یکم   
hamugeš-e daraje-ye yekom

Fr.: équiation du premier degré   

A equation in which the highest → exponent of the → variable is 1. Same as → linear equation.

first; → degree; → equation.

polarization degree
  درجه‌ی ِ قطبش   
daraje-ye qotbeš (#)

Fr.: degré de polarisation   

degree of polarization.

polarization; → degree.

square degree
  درجه‌ی ِ چاروش   
daraje-ye câruš

Fr.: degré carré   

A solid angle whose cone is a tetrahedral pyramid with an angle between its edges equal to 1°. 1 square degree = 3.046 x 10-4 sr = 2.424 x 10-5 solid angle of a complete sphere.

square; → degree.
